Bedford school officials are reaching out to community groups for guidance as they cope with a recent series of anti-Semitic incidents involving elementary schoolchildren.
The incidents, which included a game called “Jail the Jews,’’ took place at two elementary schools and came a few months after police say swastikas and hateful graffiti were found at Bedford High School and one of the elementary schools.
Superintendent Jon Sills said he is holding a community forum at 7 p.m. Thursday at the John Glenn Middle School auditorium. He also said several community organizations have offered assistance as the schools try to move forward.
“I am reaching out to organizations that may have something to offer us,’’ Sills said.
Last Wednesday, Sills met with about 200 people from Temple Isaiah to discuss the incidents and the district’s response. Meanwhile, the Bedford Education Foundation agreed to pay for a speaker to address the community on a relevant topic.
